The Weight of Relationships: Health & Fitness Tips for Couples
A study found that 2/3 of couples gain weight upon entering their relationship. That statistic is the result of couples spending more nights on the couch than the gym. A critical part of having a healthy relationship is having a healthy lifestyle. Here are ways to workout with your partner to prevent gaining the weight of a relationship.
Netflix & Workout
When couples Netflix and Chill often times there are boxes of pizza or Chinese takeout involved. Although Netflix & Chill is relaxing, you don’t want to chill your way to elastic waistbands and Jenny Craig. That is why in your relationship you should exchange that for Netflix & Workout. It involves working out with your partner to a fitness DVD like Insanity or the infamous Tae-Bo in the privacy of your own home. This can be very intimate and it can even heat things up in a way you never imagined.
Healthy Cook Nights
Boil the pot. Stir the broccoli. Bake the chicken. Cook healthy meals with your partner! A lot of times couples like to go out to restaurants, but restaurant meals are higher in calories, drenched in butter, and loaded with salt. You and your mate can make those same meals at home and make it a healthier way.
Let’s Take A Long Walk
“Let’s take a long walk around the park after dark, find a spot for us to spark conversation, verbal elation, a fitness simulation”…I know those aren’t the words to Jill Scotts infamous song, but let’s just pretend that they are for this moment. Walking with a lover around the park was something that used to be popular, but as more McDonald’s popped up the activity dwindled. If you don’t want to gain weight in your relationship then you and your partner should bring this back into style. Also check our http://www.massgainsource.com/post-workout-mistakes/
